Problems with Redhat and ATI Radeon 9250 installation
I am trying to get my ATI Radeon 9250 PCI BUS 256 MB DDR graphics card working on Redhat Linux (9 I think). I have found multiple walkthroughs for similar things but nothing specific to redhat or the 9250. What I have done so far is to download the proprietary driver from ATI and I ahve installed the RPM using force to install it over the mesa RPM. I also removed the mesa RPM (which I now realize might have been very stupid). I think I also need to mess with the xorg.conf file(maybe). The error i get while trying to install the rpm is as follows:
You are trying to load a module without a GPL compatible license and it has unresolved symbols. The module may be trying to access GPLONLY symbols but the problem is more likely to be a coding or user error. Contact the module supplier for assistance, only they can help you.
I have also read in some places that I may need to get linux kernel header files and compile those into the kernel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm not a complete Linux newbie but this topic could get over my head quickly so the more basic your steps for helping, the better. I can handle overly detailed steps better than vague steps. Thanks a lot for you help
